I oiled the new floor at the weekend ‘she says nonchalantly’… the new floor?!
The glorious new CHESTNUT FLOOR!!!!
You better believe it..! I mean we’re having a hard time believing it ourselves and we’re standing here staring at it.
Tom will be back from summer holidays today and I’m not sure he will recognise his own office thanks to the handy-work of Philip and Steve over the weekend.
Sweet Chestnut was Tom’s choice… and I was going to say it is an under-used timber but on reflection that’s only really in comparison with Oak, otherwise Chestnut seems to be very popular these days.. we’ve machined alot lately for interior and exterior cladding and for joinery.. and of course the local Sweet Chestnut coppiced products are very close to our hearts.. anyway.. so sweet Chestnut it is, and I LOVE it!
And I really didn’t expect it to look so rich and varied in colour… but that’s probably because we did go for an ‘all inclusive’ kind of grade where the idea is to throw nothing away if you can help it.. and we can help it!
Now for office number two…
and… the new desks!!!
I think can feel an office warming party coming on…
